Your Cart is Empty

Tesla cars are a work of art in which beauty, comfort, performance and safety are perfectly combined. This is what distinguishes Tesla from all other cars. All Tesla cars have a number of features. One of them is constant software updates, which also bring new features to cars.

On February 13, 2019, Tesla announced that they had developed a new feature for car safety. To further enhance the security of Tesla's cars and give their customers additional peace of mind, Tesla presented a new safeguard – Sentry Mode – to protect against break-ins and theft.

Sentry Mode adds a unique layer of protection to Tesla vehicles by continuously monitoring the environment around a car when it’s left unattended. When enabled, Sentry Mode enters a “Standby” state. If a minimal threat is detected, such as someone leaning on a car, Sentry Mode switches to an “Alert” state and displays a message on the touchscreen warning that its cameras are recording. If a more severe threat is detected, such as someone breaking a window, Sentry Mode switches to an “Alarm” state, which activates the car alarm, increases the brightness of the center display, and plays music at maximum volume from the car’s audio system.

If a car switches to “Alarm” state, owners will also receive an alert from their Tesla mobile app notifying them that an incident has occurred. They’ll be able to download a video recording of an incident (which begins 10 minutes prior to the time a threat was detected) by inserting a formatted USB drive into their car before they enable Sentry Mode.

A friend of Rafael Santoni shared a video with him where a woman keying his Tesla Model 3. Thanks to Sentry Mode, the police managed to find the vandal and she was punished for her crime.

In September, Alan Tweedie’s Tesla Model 3 being keyed badly by a woman for seemingly no reason while he was at his daughter’s soccer game. The act of vandalism was caught by Tesla’s Sentry Mode feature, and Tweedie shared the video on Facebook. After the video became viral, the woman gave up to police and was punished for her crime.

Another story that happened in October. Sentry Mode filmed the vandal, who is a keyed a 5 cars! Soon he was arrested by the police.


Model 3 Sentry mode just helped me catch a vandal who keyed 5 cars incliding mine. Thank you Elon for making the greatest car ever!! Now hopefully my insurance company doesn't give me a hard time... from r/teslamotors

There are other stories of how people commit crimes against Tesla. But thanks to Sentry Mode, they were caught by police or a video of their crimes was already handed over to the police.

We all know Elon Musk as a genius person. He does not create products that will simply sell well, he creates exactly what people need for their good. For decades, car owners have suffered from vandals that spoiled cars or tried to steal them. But not a single automaker has created anything like Sentry Mode, because they all tried to just make money, while not wanting to understand and accept the problems of their customers.
Elon Musk and Tesla are those who care about us, which is why all Tesla car owners love their cars and Elon Musk so much. Anyone who follows Elon Musk's Twitter has seen many times how he answers the questions of his clients and if they turn to him with a problem, then he helps to solve it.
Tesla is already far ahead of all its competitors, and in the future this gap will only widen.
Tesla is not just a car, Tesla is a way of life!
